It's not easy to find an upscale restaurant in Buford. Granted there weren't many people in on a Tuesday so we got great attention. The moroccan chicken Pastilla Roll was excellent with an almond vinegarette dip--different. My husband's Grilled Atlantaic Salmon was wonderful with its lemon beurre blanc sauce topped with a basil pesto. The grilled veggie with a goat... More

We eat at this restaurant frequently and always think of this as an upbeat fun dining experience. Last night, 1/10/2015, we were seated at one of the tables next to the piano where we have sat many times before. However, last night people were aloud to crowd around the piano and became obnoxious after several shots and heavy drinking. At... More

Worst restaurant experience ever. Sent back four out of six entrees for being stone cold. The other two in our party was so hungry they ate theirs. Also got order wrong and reheated food was then given back to the wrong people. When I didn't want someone else's food the server didn't understand. When I was explaining to owners wife... More

Atmosphere was very pleasant and food was good but alittle pricey. I liked that the chef prepared your food in the kitchen which was visable to the dining room. This is a piano bar. The piano player was playing a little too loud. It was difficult to carry on a conversation in the dinning room. The only other negative is... More

We had a 7:30 reservation for our company holiday party & finally walked out of the restaurant at 10:45. The food was sub par at best, nothing was hot & everything was served with risotto, even though most of our party ordered potatoes, when questioned about it our waiter said "oh well we ran out of potatoes". This would have... More

We had my best friends 50th birthday celebration at Adams. The planning and assistance we got from Tish and Adam was exceptional. My husband and I have been to the restaurant several times before so we know that the $$ we were given was a great deal. The reservation and party changed up a bit the week before but it... More

Our friends treated us to dinner here last night on a busy Saturday night. We were late for our reservation but were seated promptly at the back of the restaurant near a large table. I had some concerns about this location but it may have worked out for the best since the restaurant was crowded and the music was at... More

Just okay but we probably wont go back. There was no one in the restaurant so a busy night could not be blamed. The service was really sub par.. we had to ask for the waitress for several things including picking up the appetizer plates long after we were finished. for appetizers we ordered the escargot (they were EXCELLENT) and...

I suggested this restaurant (having had a great dinner there the week prior) for a Christmas dinner out with friends. We got there at 5:30, were just about the only ppl in the place, and had no sooner ordered our drinks than the manager comes over and pushes us to order our dinner, unless we wanted to wait forever.

I was so surprised to find such an upscale dining choice in Buford. The service was impeccable and food just luscious. We got there early on a Fri. night and were seated immediately. I suggest reservations in season (warm weather) and on weekends. We'll go back often. Specials are fab.
